Bring your old mobile phones for AT&T’s Revolve Project

Have you heard about AT&T’s Revolve Project? They’re creating a video that shows the evolution of mobile technology, so bring in those old devices we know you have tucked away in the back of the closet and be a part of it! Here’s a sneak peek.

If you bring in phones that you no longer want taking up drawer space, they’ll recycle them through Cell Phones for Soldiers, an organization that turns recycled phones into phone cards for the military. Don’t worry though, if you’d like to keep your hall-of-fame-worthy phones, you are welcome to bring them home too.

Media should email barry at gdgt for further details about our press preview.
